At least it's not "Prune"

Ah, Gwyneth Paltrow. No one can ever accuse her of not being creative when it comes to her childrens' names. The latest is, if child #2 is a boy, she wants to name him Mortimer.

I'm glad she's fond of her godfather and all, but Mortimer??? Hello?

When I was expecting, I browsed baby name websites, looked through the Bible; when I was pregnant with Son and still working, an older lady asked what names I'd picked. After I told her, she got a big smile on her face and said "Those are lovely names!"

Gawd, Gwynnie, if you're going to saddle your kids with absurd or out of date names, why not just call your kids "Kick the shit out of me" and "Never going to get laid" right now.

The Citizen and I had that exact discussion. I told him all the geeky names he thought of for the Branch would cause other kids to beat up the Branch in school. Fortunately for the Branch, the Citizen took my suggestions for names.

During one of the hurricanes that's what we did, sat around and contemplated baby names.
